at a parade with a gathering of ~25k parade attendees.

July 4th Weekend Cricket Tournament

Sponsored 48 drink dispensers to the Dallas Youth Cricket League (DYCL) tournament with teams from various parts of the US. To eliminate potential waste of many plastic bottles going to the landfill, we sponsored two drink dispensers per team– one for water and another for sports drink. As well as we provided Gatorade powder mix, compostable cups and a permanent marker to write names on the cups so they could be reused throughout the day.
Approximate reach of 512 (players and support team), reached ~288 families, and 5,000 bottles saved in 4 days.
Additionally, these donated dispensers can be used again and again at DYCL tournaments for ongoing/future impact.
